The amazing Pietro Begali (I2RTF), winner of the 2019 Hamvention Technical Achievement Award.
The 2019 Hamvention seemed to attract a very large crowd this year so I’m eager to see what the actual numbers are when they’re published. The weather was nearly perfect.
From speaking with inside exhibitors, it sounds like sales were quite good this year, some told me it was a record event.
On Saturday I took time away from my booth–thanks to my volunteers–to visit the inside exhibit tables. Most of the following photos were taken in the main Hamvention metal buildings. Somehow, omitted many photos from the tent area where our table was located.
This morning, we’re about to head out to the Greene County Fairgrounds for the final day of the 2019 Hamvention. The past two days have been amazing and, as always, it’s been a pleasure to meet so many SWLing Post readers and contributors–thank you for stopping by!
Below, I’ve posted photos I took at the Hamvention Flea Market Friday morning. Note that most of these photos were taken prior to the flea market opening. Once again, I was most impressed with the number of vintage radios on display. Although it had rained early in the morning, it completely subsided by 7:00 AM so the grounds were in great shape by the 9:00 AM opening time.

Weather yesterday morning at the Dayton Hamvention was quite pleasant–cool and partly cloudy (the rain moved in by afternoon).
As I walked around the Hamvention Flea Market yesterday, I snapped a few photos. Here they are, in no particular order:
The fellow who owns the military radio truck mobile unit (above) allowed me to take a few photos inside:
I hope to post some photos of the inside exhibits tomorrow! Stay tuned!
